“a heart, mama!”
It’s been a long time since we had a brunchday. Mostly because our mornings have been starting with me making dinner food—- or like marlowe has called us out on so many times “coffee is breakfast!” She’s right— we’re coffee for breakfast people. Big meals come later— and lately later means picking through big batches of food— noodles for breakfast anyone? But sometimes— Marlowe asks one of us ever so nicely for pancakes or waffles— and what are we supposed to do? Say no. Of course not, we make pancakes or waffles. (And I take photos for the book— just in case!) This morning, pancakes. Which actually probably I’ve decided won’t be in the book (even though they are delicious!).
After this we left the table a mess and all jumped up to run errands— and by the time we came back, we were hungry again—- so I made more food and we once again sat at the messy table, for lunch. We’re super neat and tidy people over here, but it’s nice to have those days where we all just leave it— and do something else, just because.
Marlowe is at a sleepover now and Alex and I are hungry like the wolves wanting breakfast, but waiting on blood work– but I’m looking forward to food for our bellies afterwards. And for me, I’ll turning in the first (two) chapters(s) of the book— because I’m an overachiever like that. (The first one is due!)
This weekend will be packed with work. But monday through thursday is a mix of work time, family time, and couple time—because it’s our one year anniversary! Crazy how fast this year flew by.
ps. That top photo up there? That’s early morning Marlowe and mama time. Every single night, with the most excited and eager to please face Marlowe says to me, “guess what! TOMORROW! I’m going to let you sleep and I’m going to WAKE UP DADDY!” The first night she said it, my face lit up and I smiled so big and gave her the biggest hug ever and said “Thank you!!!!” The next morning, she woke me up. That night, she said it again. The next morning, she woke me up. It’s now an almost daily thing 😉 Now I know better and I just smile in the morning, when it’s her and I and Alex got to sleep.Have delicious weekend, friends! I have empanadas, pasta, and pie on my weekend menu 🙂
